Almost finished with pair #8. It’s a toe up version of the Rose City Rollers. One of the ladies in my Ravelry group told me how to convert from a cuff down to a toe up.
I love this little anklet! Next up Hermione’s Everyday Sock by Erica Lueder.
The beauty of this face cloth is in its simplicity. This is in stockinette with a garter/seed stitch border. The yarn is 100 percent cotton. I love the feel of this yarn. The name of this yarn is Luna and it’s by Cascade Yarn.
I’m a little behind schedule. Here is pair #7 in 2016. The yarn is Regia in Jeans Style colorway and the pattern is a generic toe up, short row heel pattern from about.com.
I did a roll cuff like the Rose City Roller pattern by Mara Catherine Byner and I made them crew length. Next up is the Rose City Roller ankle length.
My friend Bob was visiting and saw me knitting a sock. He asked me to knit him a pair. Sure, I said. What color? My heart skipped a beat when he said “black”. I remember a tip I got from an experienced knitter in my group. She said, when you’re learning something new, a stitch, a technique, whatever, do not use a dark colored yarn.
So, black yarn on size 2 needles scared me. My knitting buddies said ” just say no”. I knew I couldn’t do that. This was for my good friend Bob. Anyway, I love to challenge myself.
My other half and I I went out on a Sunday to buy some yarn. We went to Holda Fiber Arts located at 4468 Middle Country Rd in Calverton. I wound up buying a gray wool yarn that Jen (the proprietor) dyed herself. I also picked up Regia’s pairfect sock yarn. That’s the yarn that guarantees both socks will knit up identically. Cannot wait to use it.
